About the Movie
THE OTHER F WORD is a revealing and touching look at what happens when a generation's ultimate anti-authoritarians, punk rockers, become society's ultimate authorities, dads. Featuring Blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Everclear's Art Alexakis, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, and more, the film follows Jim Lindberg, a 20-year veteran of the skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from rocker to dad.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What begins as an amusing fluff piece ("Daddy's messed up," mumbles one woozy subject after dropping his gurgling infant) slowly emerges as a compelling and often touching peek at punk paternity.
Rotten: "The Other F Word" winds up feeling scattershot and unfocused.
Fresh: As wonderful as it is to see the peace and happiness they've brought their dads, the real challenge for these men may come when the sweet tots who now look up to them grow into adolescents looking for authorities of their own to displace.
Fresh: Lindberg's throwaway self-description of himself as getting by during a tour "on Ambien and hair dye'' may be the best line in a movie full of good ones.
If you are a genuine lover of punk rock music or the culture itself and also appreciate the importance of being a parent (whether you are one or not), this movie is definitely for you. If you hate punk rock music but enjoy the concept of people getting over issues with their parents despite resentment and anger in order to be better parents to their own children, this movie is still for you. Very strong and positive messages throughout this film. "And maybe being a parent is the most punk rock thing of all."-Jim Lindberg (Pennywise)
Funny, insightful, painful, revealing, and it rocks!
Such a smart, funny, and thoughtful film. The punk rockers open their lives and hearts about the realities of life on the road, conflicting commitments to fans and family, and the surreal experience of raising kids. Watch it -- even if you don't know any of these particular musicians. Watch it now. Really.
I loved this movie! I've been playing punk for the past 20 years and have two kids, a boy 4 1/2 and a girl 1 1/2. To see how everybody changes is awesome. I still play. Not as much as I used to but nothing beats being on stage and looking up backstage and seeing my little boy pointing at me. He loves to go to my show so I play a lot more all ages shows. His first show was with my band and Fear. Rad!!!
